Descend the granite and steel staircase and enter through a hidden sandstone tunnel with vaulted ceiling where you'll discover a space that's all sandstone walls, padded leather nooks, thick columns and modern, halo-shaped crystal chandeliers.
Crystal Bar in the bowels of the former GPO in Martin Place is tasteful and elegant bar, nightspot and a gourmet burger restaurant in Sydney, offering gourmet cheeseburgers, with a glitzy pink bar backdrop, gold gauze curtains and subtle Crystal halos suspended from the ceiling. Rough-hewn sandstone walls and original mailroom tiling add a masculine touch, as do the plush leather banquettes and cool red lighting. Simple, stylish, understated.
Ideal for the corporate crowd who are looking for the places to drink Sydney after work. Exclusive Bar is open on Wednesday to Friday evening.
The venue's Cabaret/Burlesque, Crystal Boudoir Show on Saturday nights, billed as evoking classic vintage glamour in the style of 1920s Paris, the Crystal Boudoir Show is like performance art, and a little dream sequence. There are a lot of stilettos while a contortionist in a Crystal black cat suit pokes her sinuous leg up and over her head, a touch of vaudeville that leaves the audience gobsmacked. Between acts, a saxophonist plays a seductive groove, the perfect accompaniment to the killer cocktails. GPO Crystal Bar is the best place to drink and gourmet cheeseburgers in Sydney. There's plenty of vodka on hand and all the bottles are positioned in a specially designed ice trough, which allows the alcohol to be chilled to exactly the right temperature while still remaining on display.
DJs play funk and soulful grooves on Friday and Saturday nights.
On Saturday Nights - Crystal Boudoir Cabaret Show from 9pm to 2am.
One more cabaret show; PIMP 'Male Esque' is also performed on Saturday evenings in another GPO venue.
SYDNEY'S BEST ARTISAN FARMHOUSE GOURMET CHEESEBURGER COLLECTION
Crystal Bar has introduced a new gourmet burger range showcasing a selection of specialty artisan cheeses.
With inspiration from the 100 different seasonal cheeses on offer at GPO Cheese and Wine Room, Crystal Bar's Gourmet Burger Restaurant offers fromager hand-picked cheeses with sharp, bold flavours and creaminess to complement the fresh, quality ingredients on the burgers, including our housemade tartare-style beef patty.
Choose from Truffle Brie from the Parisian region of France, Blue Gorgonzola from Piedmont, Italy and Heidi Farm Gruyère Cheese from Exton, Tasmania.
Our gourmet burgers feature a grilled-to-order Black Angus beef patty inspired by signature tartare from our Prime Steak Restaurant Menu. These gourmet grilled burgers are made fresh daily with 100% grain-fed Black Angus shoulder with the ideal 80% beef, 20% fat ratio and imported spices from France for a distinctive flavour.
For a non-beef alternative gourmet grilled burger, there is a Chargrilled Chicken Fillet Burger with housemade chilli sauce, creamy mayonnaise and fresh lettuce, or a Chickpea, Sweet Potato, Sweet Corn and Quinoa Burger with haloumi cheese, roasted tomato chilli jam and tahini cream.
